The new year is all about new beginnings. And what better way to start a new you than with a Beauty Box 5 full of fun goodies.
I’m so in the mood for Summer! This week I went with an oldie in my collection, Hot Magenta. This one is from the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear nail polish line.
This one is a shimmery medium raspberry pink color. It’s pretty bright but not one that’s gonna blind you.
This week I went teal with my nail polish choices. I started off with Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in the color The Real Teal. This is a beautiful teal green shade with blue/green shimmer in it.
After going through my collection, I realized that Julep Harper matches The Real Teal perfectly! I decided to add this glitter polish to both of my ring fingers. Harper is gorgeous! It’s a blue, teal and gold glitter that looks like it was made to pair with this Sally Hansen color.
A couple weeks ago I broke down and bought one of the new Sally Hansen Salon Insta Gel Strips Starter Kits ($26). I bought my set at Target where they had two shades available, Shell We Dance and Red My Lips. I chose to test out the Shell We Dance because the sealed box showed it as a light pink shade which I preferred over the red.
Unfortunately Shell We Dance is not an opaque light pink shade like I thought it would be. And I couldn’t tell that until I peeled my first strip off the paper backing so I was kinda stuck with them. Once applied to my nails they are a very sheer, milky pink and you can clearly see the white tips of my natural nails peeking through.
Now that my two weeks of testing out the Sally Hansen Salon Insta Gel Strips is over, I can get back to fun nail polish colors. This week I went with something bold for my nails, Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Extreme Wear nail polish in Pacific Blue. This is a bright blue cream shade that’s an eye catcher for sure!
